In Moonfall, a mysterious force knocks the Moon from its orbit and huls it on a collision course with Earth - and with life as we know it. With only weeks before impact and the world on the brink of annihilation, NASA executive and former astronaut Jocinda 'Jo' Fowler has an idea that can save our planet. But only a man from her past, Brian Harper and lovable conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman believes her. These unlikely heroes mount an impossible final mission into space, leaving behind, perhaps forever, their loved ones - and discover an incredible secret about Earth's only 'natural' satellite.

Thoughts

Nope, nope, nope. Just couldn’t continue with this one. It was poorly made, with all those cheesy one-liners and rubbish intense stares, and all based around the concept that the moon isn’t natural at all but some kind of hollow AI thing. It’s a movie that just feeds love to the conspiracy theorists and this is such a stupid one to go with. Bleurgh.

Roland, mate, what’s going on?
